How to write a CV
A comprehensive job guide from #TeamMB.
Creating a strong resume is a crucial part of the job search process. Your CV is your first impression on potential employers and it is where you showcase your skills, experience and fit for the job. Here is a step-by-step guide from MB Rekrytering on how to write an effective CV.
1. Contact information
Start with your full name, address, phone number and email address. If you have a professional LinkedIn profile or an online portfolio, include those links as well.
2. Personal statement / Summary
This is a short paragraph at the top of your CV that gives employers an overview of your skills, experience and career goals. It should be tailored to each job application, focusing on what you can offer the company.
3. Work Experience
Here, you list your previous work experience in reverse chronological order (the latest job first). Each entry should include the company name, your position, employment dates, and a brief list of your main responsibilities and achievements.
Include details about your academic qualifications, including the names and locations of schools or universities, graduation dates, and the type of degree or diploma you have obtained.
In this section, you should list specific skills that are relevant to the job you are applying for. This can include technical skills, language skills, project management, or other specialized skills.
You can choose to include references in your CV or write "References available upon request".
